Group Health Coaching – Cut (Out) The Cheese! March 15th

March 15, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Plant Based Whole Foods Cooking & Learning Series

This powerful and unique experience includes cooking and learning sessions that will focus on the health benefits and how-to’s of plant-based, whole-foods eating. Each of the interactive group sessions will include discussions and demonstrations that will show how to create plant-based foods with minimal effort and ingredients that will have maximum nutrition without compromised flavor. Carnivores, omnivores, and herbivores alike will all benefit from this group coaching experience to enhance their understanding of healthy food choices, and how to make it work at home. The group interactions will offer peer support and accountability for the attendees along with the guidance and coaching from certified holistic health coach, Sharon Gregory.

It’s no secret that eating more plant-based and whole foods, and fewer processed foods, can be a great way to boost your immunity, fight aging, lose weight, gain more energy, and reduce inflammation. But it may not be obvious how to actually do that and make delicious and nutritious foods that the entire family can enjoy.

    Fiber – the Friend You’ve Been Missing – Benefits of Fiber and Ways to Get it in Your Diet
    Thursday, May 17th 
    (7:00pm – 8:30pm)
    Less than 3% of Americans get even the recommended minimum adequate intake of fiber. That’s something we really have to work on and it can be easy with a plant-based diet. On average, we get only about 15 grams a day. The minimum daily requirement is 31.5, so we get less than half the minimum. Participants will learn what foods to eat more of to boost their intake of fiber that can help to shed away pounds and stomach discomfort; and improve their health.
